Dons boss, Neal Ardley, has stated he would be keen on taking Tubbs back to Kingsmeadow.

The striker caught the eye with his goals during a loan stint from Bournemouth last season, prompting his move to Fratton Park.

Ardley admitted financing a move for the 31-year-old would be problematic, but it is something he would be happy to revisit at the end of the January transfer window.

Cook believes he can’t satisfy the 31-year-old in his search for regular first-team football at Fratton Park – and put the onus firmly on the Dons.

Cook said: ‘Wimbledon have a lot to say, so maybe people should be asking them what they want to do about Matt Tubbs.’
